Rock of Ages: Tom Cruise both movie and rock star

Tom Cruise attended the 'Rock Of Ages' UK premiere in London on Sunday, alongside fellow cast members Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige.

'Rock Of Ages' is a tribute to the glam sound of the 80's and 49-year old Tom Cruise plays a tattoed rock star named Stacee Jaxx. When asked if he would rather have a music career, the Hollywood star confessed he enjoys his acting job more: 'I love my job, and I feel very privileged to be able to do it. It has been a dream of mine, and I love what I do.'

Although the 1980's were known as a time of excess, Tom Cruise said he kept away from long party nights, and despite this behaviour's obvious advantage, his role of an over-the-top rock star was very challenging. 'It was a character, and it was something where you were trying to find where we can find the comedy. Comedy is different, from Les Grossman to this kind of character, and there is no half way with rock 'n' roll. You have to go all of the way, particularly with Stacee', the actor said.

Tom Cruise remains a family man at heart and recently said there is nothing more important than having a true home to go to when work is done. As it seems, he found the perfect balance between his professional and personal life: 'One thing feeds the other, the work and the family. I feel very lucky.'

'Rock Of Ages' will be in theatres starting June 15.
